Welcome to Tampa's Premiere Ballroom Dance Club
Dances We Teach
The Foxtrot is a smooth progressive dance characterized by long, continuous flowing movements making one feel like they are gliding across the dance floor with ease.. It is mostly danced to big band music like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or Michael Buble, and the feeling is one of elegance and sophistication.
A beautiful and romantic dance, the Foxtrot is composed of fairly simple walking steps and side steps. The dance combines slow steps, which use two beats of music, and quick steps, which use one beat of music. The footwork timing is usually "slow, quick, quick" or "slow, slow, quick, quick."
Waltz is a smooth progressive dance characterized by long, flowing movements, continuous turns, and rise & fall. Graceful and elegant, Waltz dancers glide around the floor almost effortlessly.
Unique to the Waltz are the techniques of "rise and fall" and "body sway." Rise and fall is the elevating and lowering that a dancer feels as he or she moves onto the toes, then relaxes through the knee and ankle, ending on a flat foot. This stylish action gives couples an up-and-down appearance as they glide around the floor. Body sway gives couples a pendulum-like look, swinging and swaying their upper bodies in the direction they are moving. These actions should be smooth and confident, making the Waltz a simple, yet elegant and beautiful dance.
